If You Could Sack One Player From the Club You Support, Who Would It Be?

With all the sack stories and rumors emerging across world football within the last week or so, I tend to speculate and try to guess myself which manager is most likely to be next.  While I feel sorry for anyone who loses their job, I understand the sacking of managers is as much a part of football as boots and the pitch itself.

Poor old Rafa Benitez is gone from Inter Milan, Big Sam Allardyce and Chris Hughton have parted ways with Blackburn and Newcastle United respectively, and it seems our old friend Steve McClaren’s days could be numbered at Bundesliga side Wolfsburg if he doesn’t turn things around quickly when league play resumes in mid January.

So while it seems like managers are a dime a dozen and can be replaced at the drop of a hat, players, while they can also be dropped to the bench or the reserves for a spell until they regain form or fitness, seem to be much better protected as it pertains to their job security. Since Christmas is now upon us, I’m granting football fans one wish before the insanity of the boxing day schedule and the fixtures to follow before the new year.

Now is your chance Premier League fans, now is the time to let the world know which one player on your beloved Premier League team you just wish would go away. Don’t be shy.

As a Manchester United supporter, I’d sack second choice goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak. Not because I think he’s a bad keeper or terrible person, but because I don’t think he’s the right fit at United to eventually replace current #1 Edwin van der Sar who will retire at the end of the season. Also, Kuszczak is good enough to get picked up by another Premier League club in mid table or one that will eventually get promoted for the 2011-12 season so I wouldn’t feel terrible letting him go.

While it’s likely United are willing to spend money to invest in a new keeper anyway, the sacking of Kuszczak would also allow room for Ben Amos and possibly Conor Devlin to gain valuable experience with the first team over the course of next season. So there’s my pick, let’s hear yours in the comments sections below.
